All regularly enrolled students on Rider’s Lawrenceville and Princeton campuses receive an identification card (ID card).  Students are required to carry their ID card with them at all times and to show it upon request of authorized personnel such as Public Safety and Residence Life staff.  

The ID card is used for access to most residence halls, all residential dining facilities, practice rooms on the Princeton campus, and the Student Recreation Center and Health Center.  It is required for entry to the Rider Pub (Lawrenceville campus) and coffeehouse (Princeton campus) and certain campus events.  It is also required for access to various University services including the Library, cashier’s and bursar’s offices and when checks are used at the University Store & Westminster Music & Books.  

Lawrenceville campus

ID cards are issued by Public Safety during summer orientation, in BLC 137 during the first week of the fall and spring semesters and at the Department’s offices in West House at the south entrance of campus all other times.  Students with mobility challenges can always obtain their ID cards in BLC 137.  

Princeton campus

ID cards are issued by the Associate Dean of Students in the Scheide Student Center for all students throughout the fall and spring semesters.  

The ID card is considered official ONLY when it is electronically validated for the current term. ID cards are never transferable.  Fraudulent information or lending an ID card to anyone subjects the holder to disciplinary action.  The ID card must be surrendered upon withdrawal from the University to the Dean of Students on the Lawrenceville campus and the Associate Dean of Students on the Princeton campus.

The first time replacement charge for a lost or mutilated card is $30.  After that, a new card costs $50.
